The Rainbow Party

Well the Rainbow Party is over! It poured with rain all day so we didn't end up using all the decorations for fear that the rain would wreck them, but we still got out the paddling pool and the jumping castle and put the kids swimmers on as planned... they were going to get wet anyway.


For the food table we had a lot of colour and used a ruffled crepe paper back drop (tutorial for ruffled crepe paper from Made) to, you know, add more colour!

Some of the foods were- 
 a rainbow fruit platter

 Rainbow Jellies



M&M's, Skittles and multicoloured popcorn


I did also make some rainbow fudge but it started melting to fast for me to be able to put it out.

To drink we had rainbow punch



We played pass the parcel and the kids got to whack a pinata

Even Ethan had a go!

We set up a paddling pool for the kids as well as the jumping castle... and I have just realised that I have no photos of the kids on the jumping castle, oops!

And here is the cake:





And then the kids went home with these party bags.

They were filled with balloons, coloured pencils, notepads and some chocolate money. We had planned on doing a treasure hunt for the pot of gold under the rainbow, but due to they rain, they went home with the gold in their party bags instead.

Mahli declared it the best party ever. And we are all settling in for an early night and a DVD on the couch. It certainly is the weather for it.

    1. Thanks Cassandra!

      I was a bit dissappointed with the white chocolate ganache icing, but in the end the cake turned out great. All thanks to your tips on freezing the cakes first!

  11. birthday party of your kids is one of the occasions when you want to give complete happiness to your child. If you rent one bouncy castle your kids birthday party will be best and memorable party. Because kids like bounce castle very much.
